Cottage Holidays in Snowdonia

Breath-taking scenery provides the backdrop for a wide range of activities and sightseeing spots in this must-visit UK holiday destination. Snowdonia is home to many mountain ranges, though of course, no visit is complete without an attempt to scale the massive Snowdon, which stands at some 3,560 feet.

A haven for those who adore outdoor pursuits, Snowdonia provides some of the best outdoor activities in the UK. Climbers can enjoy the variety of routes available – some with quite a history behind them.

For those mountaineers who prefer to explore horizontally, there are an abundance of trails and paths all over the area. Hikers can also experience some historically notable landmarks, such as the Roman Steps to the south - remnants of a much-used mediaeval packhorse trail.

Those with a preference for some gentler walking can explore the stunning forest and valley routes, such as Gwydir Forest with some superb wildlife to be found. There are also sandy beaches along the coast, in fact almost 200 miles of beautiful coastline with stunning beaches – Aberdyfi, Barmouth and Harlech in particular, are well worth a visit.

Visitors to Snowdonia who prefer a more leisurely pace are spoilt for choice with the numerous historical buildings, railways and castles. Caenarfon Castle is a must-see for history-seekers.
